Urology Negligence Compensation

If you have suffered an injury as a result of urology surgery and feel that mistakes were made during your treatment, you may well be able to claim surgery negligence compensation.

The team of professional specialists here at Lanyon Bowdler are highly experienced in dealing with a wide variety of clinical negligence cases, and will be able to guide you through the process from start to finish.

What is Urology?

Urology is the medical practice involving the kidneys, urinary bladder, ureters, urethra and the reproductive organs. Common clinical negligence claims relating to urology include:

  • Kidney stones
  • Kidney disease and renal failure
  • Kidney removal
  • Diagnosis and management of testicular cancer
  • Diagnosis and management of bladder cancer
  • Diagnosis and management of prostate cancer
  • Incontinence following various surgical procedures
  • Problems following vasectomy operations

Urology negligence claims are often due to instances of medical negligence from your urologist during surgical procedures, resulting in damage to the kidneys, bladder, urethra, ureters or reproductive organs. Clinical negligence claims commonly overlap between urology, gynaecology and oncology.

Kidney Disease and Renal Failure

Damage to the kidneys can often lead to compulsory dialysis, which may be required for the rest of the patient’s life. Kidney disease cannot usually be reversed and dramatically affects a person’s life, so often forms the basis for many clinical negligence claims.

Possible urology claims of this kind include:

  • Delay in diagnosis of renal disease and kidney damage
  • The prescription and administration of medication which damages the kidney
  • Blood pressure issues relating to the kidneys
  • Mismanagement of renal failure

Kidney Stones

Urology injury compensation claims can also be made due to instances of clinical negligence relating to kidney stones. The majority of kidney stones are small, so can be passed out of the body without any problems, but larger kidney stones can cause blockages, particularly in the ureter.

Kidney stone-related clinical negligence claims include organ damage during surgery, misdiagnosis and failing to operate effectively to remove the stone.

Kidney stones left undiagnosed can cause kidney damage and serious infection, so it is vital to have a swift and accurate diagnosis to prevent irreversible damage to the kidneys.

Urology and Cancer

Sadly, compensation claims relating to cancer are common due to the devastating effect the disease can have on someone’s life.

Claims of this type are usually due to a delay in diagnosis of testicular, bladder or kidney cancer, or the failure to investigate, manage, treat or appropriately refer the patient.
